Mountain rescuer injured

Cleveland Mountain Rescue have confirmed one of their volunteers who was airlifted to hospital during the search for Barbara Colling in North Yorkshire, has now been discharged and isn't seriously hurt.

A member of one of our sister teams slipped during yesterday's search and landed on his back. As a precaution he was airlifted to James Cook Hospital in Middlesborough by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. He wasn't seriously injured and was released later in the evening. Mountain rescue work is dangerous and we do get knocked about a bit now and again.
